adidas Skateboarding is rebooting the Aloha Super silhouette with a new colorway pulling inspiration from Mark Gonzales‘s Wallenberg ollie from Blind’s 1991 classic, Video Days. First released in the Fall of 2018, the Aloha Super model was created to honor the legendary skater and the pivotal moments he’s contributed to both adidas and skateboard history.
At its core, the Aloha Super silhouette was inspired by the adiStar fencing shoe worn by Gonz during his famed 1998 performance piece at the Staedtisches Museum in Germany. The newest iteration of the Aloha Super combines a blend of creamy suede, leather, and salmon Schmoofoil logo embroidery that plays off the sunset tones reflected in the historic ollie’s backdrop. Wallenberg’s contrasting black asphalt is represented through the footwear’s distinct, color-blocked three stripes.
The Aloha Super Wallenberg is available for purchase via the adidas Skateboarding website and select retailers for $90 USD. The style will release globally on November 2nd and in North America in early December.
